TestDAF

Study in DE
If you want to take the TestDAF, you already need good German skills. The TestDAF institute recommends you to take at least 700 German lessons before attempting to take the test. The best results can be achieved after you took 1000 German lessons. The TestDAF is a prerequisite for non-German native speakers if they want to study at a German university. The contents include business texts and vocabulary integrated in listening, speaking, reading and writing parts. The way you communicate is more important than grammar, so you should make sure you receive enough communication training with your German teacher. 
MyWebAcademy prepares you for this exam with a native German teacher. Contact us to find out more or visit our website.
